The ex-boyfriend of singer/rapper Nicki Minaj has revealed that he "almost died" during a violent attack when Minaj stabbed him. Safaree Samuels dated Minaj for 12 years and the pair recently got into a heated Twitter feud after Samuels made the alleged assault public. After Minaj appeared in a radio interview with Hot 97 and spoke of her ex-boyfriend, Samuels accused Minaj of physically assaulting him before their breakup in 2014.

"Remember the night you cut me and I almost died the police and ambulance had to take me out the crib on a stretcher?" Samuels tweeted at the singer. "I had to lie and tell them I was trying to kill myself so they wouldn’t take you to jail. When things like that start happening more Than once it’s time to dip."
The 35-year-old Minaj responded quickly saying, "U stole my card & told me you thought it was an account with ‘free money’ that I didn’t know about. On God. God will strike you down & more for lying. Ha! Stop saying u packed & left! On Jesus u came to my house CRYING BEGGING to go w/me to Europe to the EMA’s. I said NO DUMMY."

Samuels instantly replied and denied Minaj's accusations of stealing her credit card. "We know each other inside out. Everything there was for us. I didn’t use your card for prostitutes. We both didn’t trust each other. You did s— I did s—. You said you were messing with meek a few years b4 y’all got together and I’m not mad at that." Minaj even rapped about not meaning "to cut" an ex in her 2014 song "Bed of Lies."
Multiple media outlets including TMZ claim a video released in 2014 shows Minaj chasing Samuels with a knife. Samuels went on to tweet, "Towards the end it got toxic and I just packed up and left. I did things for spite and so did you. I don’t wish you bad and I don’t want us back together just like I’m sure you don’t. I don’t need you, you don’t need me but we will always be linked in the public no matter what." He added, "I still don’t have no hate for you cuz I’m happy in my own mind now. Enjoy your album dropping."
